That NBA Lottery Pick:
With the recent social networking feud between Dwyane Wade and Kevin Durant, Houston Rockets guard James Harden decided to note that the feud between Durant and Wade was real.
Houston teammate Dwight Howard decided to part some wise words to Harden in a recent interview with Comcast Sportsnet:
Howard said: “I told James [to] just stay away from [getting involved in the Wade/Durant back and forth]. We do our talking on the floor.”
To note, Howard has had some Twitter spats in the past, so I guess he’s learned something.

James Harden was stuck in the middle of this week's entertaining feud between Dwyane Wade and Kevin Durant.
In case you missed it, Durant said Harden should replace Wade on SI's top-10 best players list, which led to a back-and-forth between the Heat and Thunder star.
Harden has now weighed in on the situation. From Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald:
(Eds: Updates with details.) By TIM REYNOLDS AP Basketball Writer Dwyane Wade sat forward in his chair, listening intently to the report about how quickly the first small batch of his Li-Ning basketball sneakers that were available in the United States were gobbled up by consumers.
On average, a pair was gone every 8 seconds.
Wade leaned back, obviously thrilled at the news.
Dwight Howard says Stan Van Gundy suggested to him during the free agency process that he should sign with the Houston Rockets.
Howard ultimately did sign with the Rockets, leaving a more lucrative deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Howard and Van Gundy had their differences in the two's last season with the Magic...
To my dying day I will point out that Wade was the mastermind behind LeBron coming to the Heat. It was a brilliant strategic move because he was in no-lose situation.
If the Heat lost everyone would blame LeBron, if the Heat won he would have multiple rings (and always one more than LeBron if Bron stays in Miami) and his career would be extended because he wouldn’t be carrying...

Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni took the reigns of the team without a full training camp or the luxury to have time to implement his system. Add the fact the team was beset with injuries to Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant and dealt with the Dwight Howard drama, L.A. did manage to make the postseason but did get swept by the Spurs.
Heading into the new season, D'Antoni will finally...
There doesn't seem to be another player in the NBA that takes more pleasure in proving his doubters wrong than D-Wade. So it's not a surprise that Wade spoke about his critics at Heat media day on Monday.
From Matt Kelley of the Miami Herald:
I always enter with a chip on my shoulder. People always think something about something,” Wade said. “I’ve...
Can you imagine just how many titles Kobe and Shaq would have won if one of them was willing to accept being the 2nd option? It is one of the underrated keys to just how successful the Heat have been, Wade being willing to accept it no longer being his team. The same Wade who […]
Now that Dwight Howard is somebody else’s problem, Pau Gasol will be the starting center for the Los Angeles Lakers. However, that leaves a hole at the power forward position.
The main contenders to start at the 4 are Jordan Hill, Chris Kaman, Shawne Williams, Wesley Johnson and Ryan Kelly (acording to Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles) and it appears that D’Antoni will experiment...
